Invite teams and players aren't the only thing being shuffled this offseason, as the sponsors have participated in the dance as well. Case in point: GlobalClan Ice have refreshed their lineup as Season 6 gets underway.
The best way to describe this season's GlobalClan Ice is that they are an amalgamation of three older teams. First, you have Demoman SIN K4RMA and Scout catface, who were teammates on Destructive Criticism during Season 3 in Div-1. While the latter hasn't been seen much at all in RGL (this will be only the second season active for catface), the former spent last season honing his skills ringing for multiple Invite teams.
Another pair from that season (and division) is Medic meyy and pocket Soldier cin. They were part of Morning Light, a team that went 8-8 and even traded maps with the Destructive Criticism squad. This duo also mirrors catface and SIN K4RMA in their activity levels, with cin not having played since the Morning Light team and meyy serving as an Invite backup the last couple seasons.
Lastly, roaming Soldier Rekuso and Scout caps have swapped out their hot GlobalClan jerseys for something a bit cooler. They have been teammates since Season 4 on WONDERWALL, which then became GlobalClan Fire the following season. As the GlobalClan name has been traded around to various teams and players over the seasons, these two are the only players returning under the GlobalClan flag for an encore performance.
When asked about his team and sponsor, SIN K4RMA had only this to say:
Global domination shall begin.
The newest iteration of GlobalClan Ice will feature:
- Scout: catface
- Scout: cap
- Roamer: Rekuso
- Pocket: cin
- Demoman: SIN_K4RMA
- Medic: meyy
